                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: May 24, 2006

   By the District Director, San Francisco Office, Western Region,
   Enforcement Bureau:

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules, to the City of Brentwood ("City"),
       licensee of radio stations WQCY221, WQCY224, and WQCY226.

    2. On April 20, 2006, an agent of the Commission's San Francisco Office
       monitored radio stationWQCY221 located in Brentwood, California, and
       observed the following violation:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S 90.403(e): "Licensees shall take reasonable precautions
        to avoid causing interference. This includes monitoring the
        transmitting frequency for communications in progress and such other
        measures as may be necessary to minimize the potential for causing
        interference." On April 17, 2006, the Commission's San Francisco
        Office received a report of interference to a communications system
        from an unidentified signal on 457.400 MHz. On April 20, 2006, an
        agent determined the source of the interference to be the City's
        Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system servicing
        various City water wells, pumping stations, reservoirs, and waste
        water system. On April 21, 2006, a City representative advised the
        FCC agent that the radio system was not equipped with monitoring
        equipment which would prevent transmissions when co-channel users
        were active.

    3. Pursuant to Section 308(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as
       amended, and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, City of
       Brentwood, must submit a written statement concerning this matter
       within 20 days of release of this Notice. The response must fully
       explain each violation, must contain a statement of the specific
       action(s) taken to correct each violation and preclude recurrence, and
       should include a time line for completion of pending corrective
       action(s). The response must be complete in itself and signed by a
       principal or officer of the licensee. All replies and documentation
       sent in response to this Notice should be marked with the File No. and
       NOV No. specified above, and mailed to the following address:

   Federal Communications Commission

   San Francisco Office

   5653 Stoneridge Dr., Suite 105

   Pleasanton, CA 94588

    4. This Notice shall be sent to City of Brentwood.

    5. The Privacy Act of 1974 requires that we advise you that the
       Commission will use all relevant material information before it,
       including any information disclosed in your reply, to determine what,
       if any, enforcement action is required to ensure compliance. Any false
       statement made knowingly and willfully in reply to this Notice is
       punishable by fine or imprisonment under Title 18 of the U.S. Code.
